slave bind name resolution inquiry

hi. i configured a master and slave bind server on my vmware test network. i used nslookup to the slave name server to lookup a fake entry for that the master dns set, however, the slave is resolving the real ip of, instead of what the master dns server set. i checked /var/log/messages and the records were successfully transfered. how do i configure the slave dns so it will serve the records it got from the master dns server instead of going out?

make suer that slave can receive data from master

Did your slave receive zone file for '' from master ? Maybe slave saved records as a file.

or Make sure that zone file for '' have NS record pointed your master and slave.

Please, show configurations of master, slave

Also, check /etc/resolv.conf to make sure the server you want to use is listed first
